This Sunday is the last chance to get books from this fall’s library book sale.

Please give a  good home to the remaining books from the Friends of the Wesleyan Library book sale.  The books are both in Olin Lobby and in a red curtained area in the center of the first floor stacks (follow the blue trail from the lobby).  They will be yours for .50 cents each or you can take home a whole box for $7 (help yourself to boxes under the table) —  or whatever you can afford.  Pay on the honor system by putting the money in the honor box on the shelf outside Smith Reading Room.  Student groups are welcome to take as many books as they want tor a good cause.

The books will remain in Olin Lobby until Monday morning, at which point they will be picked up for sale or donation elsewhere.

LOOKING FOR GOOD HOMES FOR THESE BOOKS

A friend of the Wesleyan library writes in:

We’re hoping to find good homes for many of the remaining books from the Friends of the Wesleyan Library book sale.  The books are in Olin Lobby and are yours for .50 cents each or a box for $7 (help yourself to boxes under the table) or whatever you can afford.  Pay on the honor system by putting the money in the honor box on the shelf outside Smith Reading Room.  Student groups are welcome to take as many books as they want tor a good cause.

There are also many boxes of old Arguses and some bound volumes available.  Take as many issues as you like for a freewill donation to the Friends and enjoy a bit of Wesleyan history.

The books will remain in Olin Lobby until Monday evening, at which point we will start packing them for redistribution elsewhere.

Olin Lobby Book Fair


Update from Jennifer Hadley regarding the remaining books from the Olin Book Sale:

The books and journals remaining from the book sale in the lobby of Olin are deeply discounted at .50 cents each or $7 for a full box (or pay what you can).  There are plenty of empty boxes (and you are also welcome to take boxes if you need them).   Payment is on the honor system, by putting cash or checks in the cashbox on the Friends of the Library bookshelf outside  Smith Reading Room.  If you don’t have change with you, pay later.  Student groups collecting books for a good cause, e.g., the Prison program, are welcome to take books  for free.  Just  email libfriends(at)wesleyan(dot)edu to let us know you were there.  All proceeds go to the Friends of the Wesleyan Library to support library activities.  Please help spread the word to your friends.   The books will either be removed Monday or Tuesday afternoon, so act now!
